Greensprings IB Diploma Experience
What is IB Diploma?
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organisation works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The IB Diploma Programme is designed as an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepare students, normally aged 16 – 19, for success at university and life beyond
Students are required to pick 6 (six) subjects, three at higher level and three at standard level. They are to choose one subject from each group and a second subject from groups 1 to 5 instead of a group 6 subject.
Over the course of the two-year programme, students study six subjects chosen from the six subject groups. They complete an extended essay, follow a theory of knowledge (TOK) course, and participate in creativity, activity, service (CAS).

IB Diploma alumna graduates with first class from the University of Birmingham
I recently completed my degree in Biomedical Science with a first class, and as I must say no better foundation and preparation for a rigorous three-year degree than what I received from the IB Diploma Programme at Greensprings School.
The programme prepared me for the academical life in the university, as the course work, essay writing, workload, and teaching style of the IB Diploma are similar to that of the university.
The diploma also made me a better team player and increased my ability to work under pressure and manage my time effectively. Furthermore, I am now self-motivated, and all the skills I picked up during the programme greatly helped me go through the challenging times in the university.
In retrospect, the Greensprings IB Diploma gave me the platform to realise my potential and enabled me to correlate experiences in the classroom to real-life situations.

Here is what our parents are saying about the IB Diploma programme:
Our son had been schooling in Canada for more than four years, and we needed to transfer him to a top-rated IB school in Lagos. As expected, he strongly objected, and we were concerned about how to manage it.
A friend had referred us to Greensprings School Lekki, and to our great surprise, after the facility tour, our son's resistance completely crumbled; he fell in love with the school. He made some important friends on that first visit, including two senior IB students, a teacher, as well as the IB school principal.
Since joining the school, he has adapted very fast and is doing very well academically. The mix of programs and the facilities appear to exercise all his faculties. He speaks glowingly of the sports facilities, the leadership training and also the CAS program, which has opened his eyes to the plight of society's less privileged.
For my wife and me, it is a prayer answered. Thanks to the management of Greensprings School Lekki for the talented teachers, amazing facilities, and naturally beautiful campus.
The IB programme was one of the options open to us when our son completed his IGCSE exams, and I am glad we opted for it. Taking three subjects at a high level and three at lower level gives him the option of flexibility in changing from a profession he has made his mind upon to another one that can be accommodated within the six subjects he is studying.
The first thing I noticed at the IB school was the staff and their warm welcome. I thank the IB principal and IB coordinator for their patience in answering all my questions – and I must say I always ask lots of questions.
We were taken on a tour of the IB boarding house, and it was very good – the common room, the wifi, everywhere. I don’t mind spending a few nights there myself.
Our son has been in the IB programme for about two weeks now, and I saw him a few days ago and I saw changes. He has matured in that short period of time and is getting more confident and independent. I didn’t see the young boy I dropped off two weeks ago – I saw a mature young man.
He was telling me the other day that he went for CAS, athletics and dance lessons for a show coming up, and I was surprised since he didn’t do all that before.
This IB programme is making him an all-round student, not only focusing on academics but also on the other activities. As the IB principal told us at the induction that, “It's not only about academics and getting the A’s; the student must also be active in extracurricular activities, which most university and colleges abroad also look at in assessing the individual.”
Although our son had seven A’s in IGCSE, he was not that much involved in other activities except composing music and writing lyrics. However, now in the Greensprings IB school in Lagos, he is involved with lots of other extracurricular activities. Without any doubt, I am glad I took this option and will advise the same for any parent.
